    plus the bad judgement of the captain as visibility was too low. tupolev are good machines. many pilots drink like a- holes because it is their game to fly drunk, it is more "challenging" apparently:-) if civil aviation was doing its job properly, many would be stuck on teh ground for being drunk or on drugs. the fact they had to land on a fricking motorway with this bird was not helping either. the TU would be very good if maintained, it is absolute rubbish to say otherwise.. is it worse than a DC-9? older does not mean bad but all aircrafts need maintenance and this is the real problem. besides they are difficult to fly so you need an experienced crew. however, this aircraft is as safe as any.
